28 January 2019 | by caltropiawSee all my reviews

This by far the best Television mystery and crime thriller I have viewed in along time. Each episode kept the audience on the end of their seat. Plus I lived the one it used both the criminals and the police officers perspective. There truly is two sides to a story!!! It all depends on who is telling it.
